Well, I have my doubts that everyone in Switzerland is completely mature and intelligent. True, these are probably the few people who do
commit the crimes, but I‘m sure there are just as many that don‘t.
I agree that it‘s far too easy to state there‘s a problem, but not offer a solution. Here is mine:
Teach responsibility and respect for firearms at an early age. Encourage youth/adult partnerships that teach this. Offer competitions, education programs, and give kids a reason to go to them.
Other options would be to stop the media from glorifying gun-related (or just any) violence, or more harsh sentencing (including more than just incarceration, like community service, labour, etc.) for weapon-related crimes. Obviously, some of these are less viable than others, but they‘re just thoughts.
I still believe the key is education, particularily from a young age. I honestly feel that turning firearms into a taboo, and making them impossible to get and keep aren‘t helping the situation.
That‘s just my $.02, anyway. I welcome comments/concerns
